    So I haven't had to use it yet (knock on wood), but it occurred to me the other day that I'm not 100% sure if my stock jack would work if I got a flat since I installed my lift.

    I grabbed a 4" block and threw it in the back for now, but has anyone actually tried the stock jack with a 3" lift? I'd really like to avoid having to get a hi-lift jack if possible.

    Thanks.

    I have a plastic container on floor back seat.

    I keep extra hub, grease and tools for my trailer just in case. No one really rides in the back so its not an issue for me.

    In an emergency you may be ok since lifting (not a spacer lift) a Runner simply takes away downtravel that is already calculated in to the lifting height into the jack. You may have a little bit of an issue with taller tires but for sure a block or a jack base will take care of that.
